Good but not sure did what I wanted
Have been using not for face as I presume intended but for scars on legs from insect bites as per a recommendation. Unfortunately haven't seen much change
In moderation it has become a stapleWhen I first started using this product my skin went through a purge and I thought perhaps my skin was too sensitive, but mixing it with the Hyaluronic really helps and after a couple of weeks I can comfortably use this every night before bed and it evens my skin tone for the morning.
Love itIt definitely removes dry skin. My skin feels great!

Skin feels refreshedIm in my 40s with normal to dry skin. I use this product twice a week for exfoliation in conjunction with other Ordinary products. My skin feels soft and refreshed and I will keep using this product as a gentle exfoliator.
bright and glowingThis is a great product that has helped my skin immensely. It exfoliates well while still being gentle. My skin is noticably bright and glowing when using this.
Love this productI really love this! Within a week my skin was softer and clearer - the difference was very noticeable!
This was my first time suing a chemical exfoliate and I think the lower strength was the way to go. Next time I'll order the next strength up.
Love love loveI am in my 30s with dry skin, but when I put this in at night, I wake up and my skin looks dewy and fresh in the morning like I have had a facial!
I’ve just bought a second bottle :)
Another great budget productBought this by mistake, but tried it instead of returning and instantly felt my skin was brighter and fresh. Woke up the next morning still loving it.
Didn't do muchThis didn't do much for my skin at all. So I upgraded to try the 10% instead.
Exfoliates and brightensI use about 3 times a week and it has really exfoliated and brightened my skin!
Bright, clear skinI started using The Ordinary products about three months ago and have noticed a real difference in my skin. Lactic acid is one of my favourites. I apply it at night three or four times a week, and in the morning my skin is visibly clearer and brighter. Have had several people comment on my “glow” and ask what I’m doing different.
Worth the try!After a successful usage of Niacinamide,, i get to try this one! Perfect combo! Helps my dark spots lighten faster
good for breakoutsVery mild but it did help reduce the amount of break outs and the redness around the breakouts that I did get.
Just wonderful! This product made my skin clearerI've been using this product for over a month now It has:
- lovely mild exfoliant, helps keep my skin congestion at bay
- skin has gotten softer and somewhat smoother
- skins brightness has improved
- only need to use a little, so the product lasts well
This acid basically is great to start with if you’ve never used acids before. It’s so gentle that it won’t irritate even my sensitive skin. Because it’s so gentle you can use it up to two or three times a week. I found it got rid of any surface clogged pores but not my deep blackheads. My skin is always soft after using this.
I think this gave me cystic acne?Previously, glycolic acid has been my go-to AHA, However, my skin has been a bit drier and more sensitive this winter so I thought I would try this lactic acid as I read it was more hydrating and better for sensitive skin - unfortunately this product was really disappointing and did not work for my skin at all! I have normal/combination skin and while I get the occasional minor pimple I have never really suffered from acne but after using this product I started to get really deep, painful cystic pimples. As soon as I stopped using this product the pimples stopped coming. So definitely never using this again...went back to The Ordinary's glycolic toner and am much happier with it!
GoodThis is an amazing exfoliant that has helped my skin a lot. It has also reduced my acne scarring and pigmentation
helps acnelove this product i must use it every night!! massive improvement in my acne scarring but still mild and gentle for my sensitive skin
Not sureIt very mild exfoliation product. Im not sure it doing much on my skin. Doesn’t cause any break out tho.
